Picoliter Molecular Printing on Any Surface, Dimatix
April 2006
SHARING OPTIONS:

The new Dimatix DMP-2800 system allows researchers to precisely "print" microdrops of any type of material suspended in any fluid. Recent applications involve a wide range of solutions—including DMSO, fluorescent labeled proteins, enzyme mixes, genomic DNA, oligonucleotides, and even living bacteria and yeast—on any type of surface. It has single-use cartridges that users fill with their own solutions to eliminate the chance of cross-contamination or waste of precious materials. The Dimatix system can deposit 10 picoliter droplets of fluid to "print" feature sizes as small as 40 microns on surfaces such as plastic, glass, silicon, membranes, gels and paper. With the piezo inkjet deposition system, users can array biological fluids including buffers and reagents. Adjustable parameters make the DMP-2800 the only deposition system that allows substrate flexibility. With the system, researchers can print onto XY heated platens for thin films, wafers, glass slides or assay plates sizes 96, 384, 1536, or 3456, all by changing a software setting. Users can also speed up or slow down the pulses, eliminating issues like satellite drops, and enabling the printing of uniform arrays ranging from 10 picoliters to 100 nanoliters. The system has great precision for the price, with a proven accuracy of plus or minus five percent. With model fluid, the system can fill a 1536 assay plate in about 40 seconds.
